So I went ahead and did it, the Ozempic thing. [View all]

I was at a scientific conference this week during which some data was presented. It looked good to me.

I certainly qualify for it, high A1c, glucose, and I'm pretty fat and am not finding the time to exercise.

I'll see how it goes, whether my pancreas or thyroid explode; for now the injection site is a little tender; that's all.
